The way territorial expansion worked in the US, most cities existed (and were thus named) before the territory officially became a state. Of course, in the Midwest, American Indian names are all over the place. My home town was Piqua in Miami County in Ohio. [Pekowi, a band of Shawnee / Miami, another Indian tribe / Ohio, ‘good river’ in Senaca.]
It’s much the same in NZ. The towns are either cribbed (and occasionally misspelled) from local Māori place names or named for an arbitrary Victorian lord, who frequently never set foot or died hundreds of kilometers away, heading the general direction.
